Hello and welcome to my travel blog Ticket to Adventures! My name is Piia, I am the owner and author of this blog.
I am a traveller, adventurer and dreamer who loves new cultures, foreign languages, inspiring people, healthy food, exotic drinks. And exciting experiences above all.
I am also a city girl, nature lover, sports enthusiast and a lot more. I have a passion for storytelling, photographing and sharing intriguing experiences.
By profession I am a marketing extraordinaire with 3 academic degrees (MBA, MA, BA).
Originally I am from Finland (currently based in Helsinki) and over the years I have also had the opportunity to live in Australia, the UK and Spain. Read my story How it All Started.
With this blog I wish to share my travels and adventures around the world, near and far. I also wish to offer you adventurous, practical and dreamy travel advice and inspiration to explore the world and to gain new experiences. I hope you enjoy the ride!
Travelling my style
I travel as much and as often as I possibly can. Both in Finland and abroad. I love to travel because it makes me feel free and alive. Travelling is my passion, my hobby, my inspiration.
I love summer, beach, sun, sand and sea. I also love winter and snow. I love vibrant cities with cultural activities. I love culinary experiences. I love nature, fresh air, flora and fauna. I love outdoor activities and anything to do with sports. As a result, these aspects are always present on my travels, one way or another.
I do not do package holidays. In turn, I want to plan and book my travels by myself as the planning process itself is an integral part of my total travel experience. I require quality up to certain standards. I do not need the most expensive luxury, but I do not want the cheapest budget travel either.
I try my best to avoid tourist traps. I want to travel off the beaten track and find my own paths. I want to get to know local people, local habits and local way of living. When in Rome do as the Romans do.
